What we loved at these restaurants in Boca Raton 

Our Palm Beach Post writers anonymously visit a restaurant in your neighborhood each week in search of the best menu item. We have rounded up the best neighborhood eats in Boca Raton and tell you why they liked each one!


  • Reason To Go: The huge menu proves there’s something for everyone, especially when it’s tough to agree on a desired cuisine. It’s also located in Town Center at Boca which is convenient for post-shopping hunger. Try the grilled chicken and avocado salad ($14.95). It’s not your average bowl of’s composed of sliced chicken, shaved carrots, sliced avocado tossed with citrus peanut vinaigrette. —Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter


  • Reason To Go: It’s one of the few seafood restaurants in the area. Go at lunchtime when the prices are less, but the portions still huge.  Try the smoked fish dip ($11.95), it’s big enough for three or four people and served with chips and veggies. —Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter


  • Reason To Go: A great place to grab a quick bite while shopping, especially if the kids are getting cranky. Plus, the options are healthier than what you would probably find at the food court. Try the Cobblestone Turkey sandwich ($8.95) which is a panini with a hearty amount of smoked turkey breast, melted Monterey cheese and bacon pressed between pieces of cinnamon bread. —Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter


  • Reason To Go: The eatery is a great place to watch sports and some grab bar bites, especially with the fun outdoor seating which is perfect for socializing. It’s also likely one of the few places open past midnight in Boca Raton.  Try the American Sampler ($9.95), it’s a Monday special that allows you to taste a little bit of everything: ribs, chicken wings, hand-cut French fries and sliders! — Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter


  • Reason To Go: This landmark  restaurant has been serving its customers for more than 30 years. Plus, it’s one of the few locally owned gourmet Chinese food restaurants in Boca. If you’re really hungry, try the Oriental Sunset Dinner, which offers a four-course meal for a fixed price ($17.95). —Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter


  • Reason To Go: On weekdays from 2 to 7:30 p.m., you can enjoy happy hour with “bar bites.” Some are selected from the menu, and others are tailored just for the special at the bar and high-tops. Try the crispy golden brown potato latkes ($8.95), which provided a hearty start to the meal with a soft, springy potato center, comparable to hash browns you might find at a breakfast joint. — Alexa Silverman, Palm Beach Post reporter

Postcard from Paris: Chez Papa

Stopping in Paris for a few days on my way to the wine regions of France has become a ritual. There's usually a trip to Willi's Wine Bar on the Right Bank. Willi's has always served exceptional wine, but the cuisine was somewhat rustic. It has recently upped its game in the kitchen, for which I am grateful.  Joel Robuchon's l'Atelier, on the Left...

What. Just. Happened?! NCAAs amp up the March Madness

One word succinctly describes what's transpired so far in the NCAA Tournament:  Madness.  But even that's probably underselling it.  A comeback for the ages by Nevada. An entire region left without a Top 4 seed in the Sweet 16 for the first time in tourney history. The 16-seed winner UMBC, falling short in its attempt to extend its historic...
A treat for lemon lovers and beyond
A treat for lemon lovers and beyond

There are chocolate people, and there are vanilla people. I am a lemon person. Show me a dessert menu, and I’ll choose whatever is flavored with puckery lemon or any of her citrus sisters — lime, tangerine, kumquat, yuzu. Even as a kid, I went for lemon sorbet over the mint chocolate-chip ice cream. The combination of sugar cut with enough...

Pour wine to savor and enjoy, not guzzle
Pour wine to savor and enjoy, not guzzle

When you think of the broad concept of “enjoying wine,” or at least when I think of it, it’s hard not to imagine a glass being raised. Sometimes it’s a person raising a glass in a gesture of “Cheers,” and other times, it’s a bottoms-up raising of the glass as someone takes a sip or a whiff of wine. But just...
